Hi there!

Summer has come & I think truly means to stay a bit. I’m a big fan of the sunny weather & this cute Beach to Bar swim style from Springboro Pike’s Blush Boutique. I’m thrilled I was able to work with their team to photograph a big announcement coming later this summer! It was a humid Ohio afternoon, but we had a lot of fun & got creative with locations all within a few miles of my home. It brings me a lot of pride to be able to make my Dayton shine.

    That is so exciting!!! I can’t wait to see it – I bet it will be wonderful (as always)! :) I just got my first opportunity to use my marketing “knowledge” with a small business – exciting but somewhat nerve-wracking at the same time – I’m sure you can relate! I’m lovin’ this weather too and soaking it up as much as I can before I start my last quarter of school…time sure does fly by! :S

Fridays before weddings are usually quiet days around here. I try to focus on charging batteries, backing up memory cards, making multiple prints of timelines, and taking inventory of all my gear.
Today I’ve been organizing batteries and wanted to share a little tip.

I tiptoe the line on insanity when it comes to my Nikon Speedlight batteries. Since 2010, I’ve labeled them in batches of four, (since I use four AA batteries on each of my Speedlights). I use some flashes more than others & always have extra batteries, so the wear on each set can be different. I don’t want to have to guess through my entire battery inventory if there is one set in particular that is not holding a charge, is older, or has been damaged. In the past I’ve written dates on them with stickers, but I’ve noticed that even a slim sticker makes them get stuck in the SB 700 slots (I rotate between sb 700 & sb 910s depending on what I’m shooting). I tried sharpies and they easily rubbed off. Now I use a small stroke of nail polish to code them on the battery label. I also use these great (color coded of course) battery cases that my friend shared with me. They are great for knowing the day of an event which ones are charged and which ones have been used.

I’ve love to know if you have a little tip for organizing your gear that you’d like to share!

Thanks for reading and I hope you have a good weekend! ♥

Peony Love by Andrea Doziér Photography

After months of anticipation & planning, I get excited to see wedding invitations arrive!

I’ll be visiting New York to photograph this wedding and an engagement session at the end of July. As I am planning this trip to NY, I wanted to open some dates for portrait bookings. I am excited to come to the city for the first time
and have some flexibility with my time there.
Email me at hello@andreadozier.com to get in touch! 💛

Happy Memorial Day!

This portrait session is from a year ago, when Q. & Alli asked if we could do pictures during their visit to Dayton. Alli, of Hooray blog, is a such a sweet creative talent that I’ve been fortunate to meet online & photograph her styling for a few assignments. If you’ve read my blog over the years, you will remember some of our projects. I’ve linked a few of them at the bottom if you are a new reader. We’ve had a lot of fun and will need to collaborate again sometime soon!

I was more than happy to show my friends around our Oregon District before they spent the rest of the afternoon at Wright Patterson Air Force Base Museum. Q was set to deploy a few days after, so this was a really special time for them before he left. I’m so thankful for people who endure separation to keep our life at home stable. When I photograph military families, I try to weave “subtle hints of their families’ military legacy without making it the dominant theme.”

We started on Wayne Avenue at Press Coffee Barwhere they sell tasty cool drinks too.

Peonies were in bloom so I brought a few from my yard.
They are starting to bloom now, so I will be flower bombing my friends with them soon.

    Your work is so beautiful! These are so special to have. I’m used to having fun working with you behind camera (so it felt completely awkward going into this!) but I just love how thoughtful you are about the whole process and at capturing moments.

This spring I started accepting studio portrait sessions at Dayton’s Lost & Found Vintage Rentals studio. My first booking came from Jill, who was a past bride of mine & now has her own baby girl! It was great to see them as parents & photograph them as a family of three. Baby girl had fun exploring the space & being kissed by mama and daddy. She makes me miss those chubby rolls that seem to disappear when the walking starts! As you scroll down, you’ll see she is just about ready to take those first steps!

When we planned the session over coffee, Jill let me know that she was really inspired by classic black & white photography. It was important for her to choose her wardrobe so that the textures would pop. We chose to keep the setting very simple so that the portraits would reflect a minimal style. I really like how the print on her dress translated to black & white.
